We want to know, love, and glorify God and be used by Him to help people become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ and to help create churches and other ministries that do the same.
Since 1978 we have seen many people become followers of Jesus Christ and dozens of churches started across the USA and in other nations by people who have gone out from Hope. Read more of our story…
Have you ever been in a relationship or a part of a group and it felt like a grind? At Hope Church we desire to treat each other in a way that honors God and makes relationships enjoyable. We are committed to 7 Heart Attitudes that guide the way we relate to one another and do church. Here is a list of these attitudes and a key verse from the Bible for each one:
Hope is an innovative church. We use contemporary styles of music and communication to help people learn and grow. And, we are willing to evaluate our efforts and change to stay effective in helping people.
People are very important to us. We try to create a welcoming and safe environment where people who are less familiar with church can easily fit in and learn. And, we help those who have become followers of Christ to develop into fully-devoted followers.
The Bible is also important to us. We believe it is relevant to all areas of life and gives the guidelines for connecting with God and for living life to the fullest. Through a variety of means we try to help people understand how to put it’s teachings to work in daily life.
We are an autonomous church, responsible for our own direction and activities, and financed by the giving of the members of our congregation. We began in 1978 with fifteen people and have grown to a congregation of several hundred.

Hope Church is a part of the 17:6 Network. The 17:6 Network is a group of churches across the nation that share a similar vision and set of values by which we seek to advance the Kingdom of Christ in the world. We believe that when pastors and other leaders have a community base within which to minister, their ministries grow stronger and healthier and their ability to do the ministry God has laid before them becomes much more effective.
